One factory in the United States has been busy for months as the rest of the economy slows down -- the Hormel Foods (NYSE:HRL) plant that makes Spam.

The factory in Austin, Minn., has been operating two shifts a day seven days a week producing the canned lunch meat, The New York Times (NYSE:NYT) reported. Workers, with all the overtime they can handle, have been told the long hours are likely to continue indefinitely.

Campell is probably doing the same.

Free advice: You should really buy food for at least a week and keep it at home. Pastas, rice etc last 'forever' and you never know, unchartered territory and all.

I like the home page - Itís good!

I am buying a house at the moment and being younger will be buying things that last a while too pastas and rice etc is a good idea.

I am also guessing this spam deal is all down to the bad economy?

Or, maybe all the golden parachute Wall St. types are heading off to Hawaii with their pink slips and brief cases full of cash and driving up demand...

For real Spam weirdness, do a search for "spam Hawaii"... It's not a new fad -- for years people in Hawaii have consumed much more than their fair share of SPAM.

Yes, spam is cheap. It also lasts for years as well, so there is no real downside in buying 10 cans 'just in case.'

P.S: I am not a survivalist type, and I did not go in a bunker for Y2k:)

As I understand it, the Mormons were the first to preach/practice this (tho' 6 months worth.

I was in the Navy. Chuckles.

I love SPAM! Don't eat for a few days and then crack open a can of SPAM. It will be history in minutes and you'll have loved every single bite. You might even lick the can, I have. :)

The title has a deceiving visual. When I looked at first, I thought it said Spam Numbers up at Home. Tricky!

Also, SPAM should be all caps and it is trademarked.

In the UK some people fry SPAM slices in batter and eat them hot. It's fat overload but tasty!

Homepage link go me too, nice one :)

SPAM (lucheon meat) is (IMO) the best bait for Barbel (European species of fish that pulls your arm off).

but there is nothing worse than cutting up SPAM all day for bait, then finding it in your sandwiches!

diddlydazz, i was just about to say the same thing.

can't go near the stuff thanks to barbel and chub fishing down my local weir. It's a real art to keep the stuff on the hook. A juicy slug was always more successful but not always easy to find.

In the category of mystery meat, I rate SPAM two points above the McRib, with Oscar Mayer Cheese Hot Dogs coming in at a distant third. :)

An entire country hooked on LIPITOR proofs this stuff is as yummy as it gets. ;)

We read the NYT and my wife got all misty-eyed remembering Spam as a child. Now this.

OK. I will buy some Spam on my next trip to the grocer.
